Default how does CESU work?

Hello,

I was told that if I get some one for small tasks around the house, I can submit something to the CESU (cheque emploi universel) that will get back to me as tax benefit which means effectively paying less.

I made an account there but I am not sure I understand how this works...
I get the guy, pay him and register that there? or I claim the time worked there then the amount is deducted from my account and they pay him....

any clarification would be much appreciated !
thanks
MS

If you have created your personal space on the CESU site, you enter at the end of each month the amount the person you are employing has earned. CESU will deduct this sum directly from your bank account. The amount is then credited to the employee's account a day later. Each year at the end of August, you are debited the sums corresponding to the employers compulsory contributions.

https://www.cesu.urssaf.fr/info/accu...-que-cest.html

This is the example they give:

D employs C at her home. On 1st July, D declares the sum earned by C on the CESU site.
On the 3rd July, CESU debits D's bank account.
On the 4th July, the sum is credited to C's account.

All my private English teaching is paid by CESU. My "employers" like you pay me cash/cheque monthly and declare online that they have paid me, for example, 60 euros for 4 hours teaching. Employers have my CESU details and their "charges" for me are deducted from their bank accounts. They declare 4 hours @ 15 euros. I, as an employee, get an official payslip and I keep my Carte Vitale and hours added to my French pension account.

But please note, you will be paying a lot more, because you will be paying around 80% more because you will be paying the social security charges of your "employees".

However, you can claim a tax credit when you make your tax declaration. See petits travaux here https://www.service-public.fr/partic.../vosdroits/F12

What do you mean by "small tasks" Cleaning? Gardening? Handyman type jobs?
